Thoughts on Music in Poland

OP Wroclaw

I've just got back from Maanam in concert. They were on Piaskowa island here in Wroclaw. The guitar work was good but I found the vocals a little rough [but that's just the Polish style] You couldn't miss anything because they had a large screen to the right of the stage. As usual with these open-air events it poured with rain, it was cold and it was windy. But I didn't pay, so for me it was worth it. One last note. At certain moments I felt that I was at a 70s rock concert.

If you haven't seen them, they are good.

Yes, I know them -- great Polish band (for "oldies" I should say). But they are doing very good.

Mixed emotions for having missed it... While staying with rain fear seems like a wise thing to have done, missing a 70's feel rock show is more of a crime.. So net net, I believe I am at a loss for having missed it.. :(

One of my fav polish groups are Akurat. Here is their site, if you would like to sample.

Well, it may look funny now, but when you compare this band (Papa Dance) with their American or British peers at that time (let's say Duran Duran or Depeche Mode) - I can see no difference at all between them.

I wasn't insulting the groups...I think they sound good.

and Piot Cugowski is from good Polish rock group "Bracia". I think they started in 2000 or later.

Speaking of Papa Dance - this Polish band would have been the STAR if they were born 20 years later. When I listed to the Polish music now I rarely hear a better or more talented band - 20 years later. Another Papa Dance song:

Speaking of Polish classic hits - THAT was something (Bajm - Nie ma wody na pustyni). The video was made possibly on a public dump site, but the song for the early 80ties - WOW).

That guy could give Richard Simmons a run for his money.

I'm native Polish who is listening to croatian music at the moment (Severina etc.) why? cuz its' very similar to polish (the words are almost the same sounding)

I was walking around rynek@ wroclaw last saturday and saw a concert happening.. There was an interesting rock group playing but did not manage to get their name.

Later Gosia Andrzejewicz came and started singing. Was really impressed by her talent and singing. Infact I used to hear her in Viva, but never really used to watch the video (for I play that channel only when I need some background music in the house).

It was one of the most enjoyable concerts in Poland so far, though that aint my fav style of music.

Wroclaw... it was to end by 8 pm and hence, did not bother to message you in..

Is that Fisz or Fish ?
24 Nov 2006 /  #77
Fisz...sort of alternative hip hopish type of stuff.
OP Wroclaw  
24 Nov 2006 /  #78
Ah !

There are lots of posters for Fiszemade. But I know nothing about him/them.
24 Nov 2006 /  #79
He used to be hip hop, but has recently become a little more alternative. Not sure what you're into though. I also appreciate other PL hip hop..mostly Grammatik though.

there a lots of Ukrainians in Poland, so I am sure you will find that version. If not , I can sing it to you:)

My favourite music in Poland is Electro, A lot of it is either in English or has no lyrics at all. Polish electro is different to the Electro House that we have in England
10 Dec 2006 /  #87
I like Electro too.
13 Dec 2006 /  #88
My favorite music in Poland is Electro

I wonder what Chopin and Paderewski would have made of it?

I'm pleased that my musical repertoire includes the music of Jan of Lublin (16th century)on the one hand, and the music of Marian Sawa (20th/21st century) on the other.

I reckon O.S.T.R is awesome. He freestyles like no other and also raps about rugby, so he's got my vote! The only problem is that it is impossible to get a hold of any of his records in australia. I have had to send away to pl to get them sent over here......well worth it though.


Does anyone here like Liroy? i think he is a major pisda and his music is rather chujowa, but a lot of people seem to like him

piotr is my tri city home boy... original polish hip hop from the days of way...
